When your ant exterminator arrives at your Central Florida home, show him or her the places where you have seen ants in the past.
When you hire an ant exterminator to get rid of the ant colonies at your property, there are a few steps you can take to prep your home for the service. Doing so can help maximize the results and make the most of your ant extermination service. Get started by cleaning your kitchen and wiping all crumbs from the countertops. Even seemingly invisible crumbs can be appealing to ants, so go over the counters multiple times with clean rags. The next step is thoroughly vacuuming all the floors within your house.
Take inventory of your kitchen cabinets, cupboards, and pantry to look for open boxes and containers of food. Keep all food items in sealed airtight containers or in the refrigerator. Keep pet food out only when they are eating and then put it away. If your animals must free-feed, use food dishes that sit off the ground. Before placing recyclables in the bin, rinse them out well, so they don’t have strong odors or particles of food left behind. Use sealed trash containers and take out the waste frequently.
When your ant exterminator from our team at Waters Pest Control arrives at your Central Florida home, show him or her the places where you have seen ants in the past. Doing so will help the exterminator know where to start when placing ant bait. Ask for post-treatment instructions after your ant exterminator finishes the service. With a few additional steps before the extermination treatment, you can help reduce the odds of having the ants return.
